About Ishwar Singh

Ishwar Singh is a Senior Lecturer in Biological Chemistry at the School of Pharmacy, University of Lincoln. Prior to Lincoln, he had held many prestigious fellowships such as the Alexander von Humboldt fellowship, Germany; and Senior Research Fellowship, DANIDA, Denmark and CSIR, India. He is an organic chemist. He has developed bioconjugations for DNA, RNA and polymer modifications in water. He is currently leading research in Biologics delivery, Peptides, Sequence selective DNA cross linking, Nanoparticles modifications for drug delivery and diagnostic applications and broad spectrum antibiotics, novel antimicrobials based on rational design against clinically important resistant bacteria such as MRSA, Mycobacteria, K. pneumoniae , A.  Baumannii , P. aeruginosa. Some examples are Teixobactins (èce-de-résistance/2500349.article) and chemistry tools for spatial surface modifications for diagnostic and preventive applications.
